Adventures of William Tell, The ITC 1957 – 59

Fourteenth century Switzerland. The country is under Austrian rule and one man dares to stand up for freedom against the tyranny of this oppressive regime. Conrad Phillips plays the legendary Swizz bowman in this nineteen fifties adaptation of the legend. In honesty it’s really little more than a Swizz version of Robin Hood. Willoughby Goddard’s character of Gressler (the Austrian Governor) being the equivalent of the Sheriff of Nottingham. Thirty-nine episodes were produced in the, then popular half hour format used by ITC.
